I have been working at Northrop Grumman full-time (More than a year)

Pros

Best work-life balance. I personally never had to work unpaid overtime, and could work 40 hours a week in 4 days then take a day off with little notice. Great benefits.

Cons

Big projects, work on system c/c++ code which is hard to find a job in the job market with just that skill set. Development environment was a nightmare because of classified networks. Company was big and you def didn't get the feel that they cared about you.

Advice to Management

Middle management syndrome. Listen to the developers and their ideas on process. Time to move projects and pressure clients to agile.

    I worked at Northrop Grumman full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Good benefits and pay, when a good contract was available.

    Cons

    Raises are small since the company is always trying to reduce its costs. Managers don't pay any attention to their employees and offer no career advancement opportunities. HR does very little to help find you a new position if your contract has been cut.

    Advice to Management

    Get some managers that actually do something with their subordinates. Pay attention to career objectives.

    Northrop Grumman has good benefits (health, 401K, vacation, PTO although there is no sick time) and the daily work schedule is flexible.

    Cons

    Poor annual raises, if any. Cumbersome performance appraisal processes. Juvenille and cliquish managers. Poor ethical environment.
